Sign language

The children have had a great opportunity learning sign language last term. We had two special volunteers (Emma and Linda) who taught the children sign language once a week. They really enjoyed this experience and have learnt so much about how to communicate with someone who has a hearing impairment.

A big thank you to all those who could make the sign language session and the Christmas sessions Autumn Term, it was a great experience singing and signing a song for Celebration Assembly. 

We are currently learning signs for The Lord's Prayer and our favourite Lenten Hymn, The Servant King. 

In English, we have been looking at a non-fiction unit called 'Let's Go To..' In this unit we will be exploring non-fiction features, whilst learning about life in the United Kingdom, Australia, America and Kenya. At the end of the unit we will be writing our own information piece about one of the countries that we would like to visit.

In Science, we are learning about plants. So far we have explored the life cycle of a flowering plant and have identified the requirements plants need to live and grow through experiments. 

In Geography, we have started to learn about the Stone Age to the Iron Age. 

We have found out about what Britain was like during the Palaeolithic period when Britain was still part of the mainland of Europe. After the Easter break will be be finding out about early species of humans and how and when Homo sapiens first came to Britain.

In RE, we have been focusing on Lent why it is such an important time of year for us. We have talked about why we change during Lent to become more like Jesus and recognised that we can do this through prayer, fasting and almsgiving.
